Here is a chanteh which is probably Kurdish. There are even some offset knots.

It reminds me somewhat of the one you posted:

The dark grey weft in yours looks similar to the weft in the brown bag.
This one, with a red two-shot weft, is 8" x 17" (20cm x 43cm) with symmetric knots and no warp depression.

The colors are not like my brown bag, but the construction is similar.

Egbert, Kelardasht are often single wefted and can be either symmetric or asymmetric knotted. I have a couple of their bags around here somewhere. I will put on a headlamp and climbing shoes and head down to the bunker to see if I can find them.
